2-shoes at 8 weeks!

I was finally able to use a right shoe today for the first time since June 5th!  I am now officially out of the boot.  That puts me at FWB in 2-shoes with no crutches at 8 weeks 4 days.  Today was by far my best milestone to date.  All I have is a little heel lift in my right shoe.  I walked around normally all day with 2-shoes and even walked a mile after work, all that and no PT yet!  I barely have even a hitch in my step.  I have no pain and no swelling (although to be safe I iced my ankle after the mile).  The doc must have sewn my AT up very well.  Tomorrow I am going to spin class but I will go easy on the tension and not do any standing.  Just want to get some cardio.  I am also going to call the PT doc to schedule my first appointment, hopefully for tomorrow.  The doc prescribed PT 2-3X per week for 4 wks.  I will be on a cruise in two weeks so I will need to make sure I continue with self-administered exercises that week.  Things are starting to look up!

    That’s really great - no pain/swelling/limp sounds a dream. Hope all continues to go well. Enjoy your cruise.
